Poor Bigdog and your mrs!! I am no expert on a remedy (though I have suffered similar condition several times, horribly violent but always went away after a few hours) but I think some extra dose of sugar will actually do you good... your body is exhausted, it could use a quick lift up...
I hope both of you will feel better soon!!

Agree with Alix and buckytom, you need fluids, electolytes, and probably sugar, unless you cannot have it for a medical condition.

About six months ago, upon coming back from a vacation, developed, well, a very nasty similar condition.

Spent about a day and a half unable to intake nothing.

When things calmed down a bit found a can of tomato soup.

Nothing ever tasted so good.

Then, slowly, took whatever I could find that seemed like a good idea and slowly ate it. Could not go out to buy anything.

I did fine.

But if anyone has this, and is incapacitated for more than a day and a half or so, go to the emergency room. For children and seniors, do not wait that long.

They can replace your fluids with an IV and save a life.

Sounds like you have some good suggestions. How about some plain oatmeal or cream of wheat.

How about grits with salt and pepper? I like powdered boullion in a cup of hot water and low salt crackers. A plain baked potato might be good.
I always keep Power Aide on hand. It has the best mix of minerals. Candied ginger is also good for your stomach. I know how you feel.

Ditto on Alix's suggestion. Drink at least 16 oz. a day of Gatorade or Powerade for the electrolytes. This will also aid in preventing dehydration.

When I was seriously dehidrated once (heat stroke) the nurse made me drink lots of gatorade with a ton of salt in it. The salt helped me retain the fluid. It tasted disgusting, but it helped as far as I know.

I fixed a friend one time some cream of mushroom soup with rice and pureed it. That's one option.

And keep those fluids going in - my son's girlfriend was just admitted to the hospital with, besides a VERY bad kidney infection she was severely dehydrated - she took 5 bags of fluid! That's a lot for a tiny little girl. And as Alix said - don't worry about the sugar.

I really hope you and Mrs. Dog feel better soon. It's not fun being sick. Also a dose of - gosh, I can't remember the name of it now - you can get it over-the-counter - can stop such "bodily functions"

Doesn't sound like food poisening that's for sure. Feel better soon!!!!
